iOS and macOS Dev Delight #5


Dear Readers!


It has been a while since the last Dev Delight and so much happened. In fact, with all what happened and still happening, we did not feel comfortable to send out a newsletter. Given the circumstances with people fleeing the Russian invasion and suffering from war in Ukraine, we will keep this edition of Dev Delight short. Our hearts go out to all people affected!


If you want to help, please checkout the information from our friends at Setapp on how to support Ukraine. 🇺🇦
